Quality and Differences of Water Cooler water
I have just bought a water cooler and am now looking into the best quality water to buy.
I bought a few bottles from a small indian shop downstairs called Safa - Pure Drinking Water. BUT to my horror the sales man told me that it is plant water which i have been told is full of chemicals and basically the same as tap water??!!
The reason I bought the water cooler was so that I can have GOOD quality water with essential minerals needed by the body. Nothing fancy, but pure clean water.
Can anyone advise what my options are and which brands I should be looking into?
Thanks so much :)
I saw some comments about Almas water here, they might be good before but now the service is very bad. Bottles are old and low quality. They don't deliver water regularly and doesn't care if the customer is out of water. At time of sale, staff keeps chasing you and then stop answering when not delivering. Delivery head also doesn't reply and dont care about customers.
Avoid almas water and go with other companies like Qatar Oasis or Marwa .. much better quality and peace of mind.

MARWA WATER - MOST UNPROFESSIONAL, IRREGULAR SUPPLY AND WORST CUSTOMER CARE. MY SUGGESTION IS DO NOT USE MARWA WATER. THIS IS HAPPENING EVERY NOW & THEN.
i used marwa i used nestle i used qataraat, i used almanal, finally i stopped to use all delivery services from water companies , then one of my friend suggested the water filter called the filter company and put filter after 6 month i need to change the filter then i called the sales person many times but he did'nt come, with out changing the filter i cannot drink the water, finally i got one one advertising paper of almas water from in front of my door and called the person and bye the coupon book from him, any way now almost 8 month finish i am happy about almas water service when three times i forgot to keep the bottles out side, but i called the sales person 74781531 this number immediately he arranged me the delivery without any delay,,,,,i need to say all home delivery water companies if your company is feeling that your the reputed company in qatar and customers is not important to us you will be i lose as soon as possible.......
MARWA WATER - MOST UNPROFESSIONAL, IRREGULAR SUPPLY AND WORST CUSTOMER CARE. MY SUGGESTION IS NOT TO OPT FOR MARWA WATER.
it is true that most companies use treated tap water and Rayyan use mineral water, however if you look at teh sodium (N) content then Rayyan water is high compared to teh treated tap water.
Not too sure - we just get it delivered from the Compound Shop?
I have tasted most. My preference is Al Manhal or Rayyan. Have Al Manhal at home. 'Tis good.
thanks for all your feedback and honesty on the matter, i had no idea it was all treated tap water.
I guess now I just have to make my mind up as to which treated tap water I want to pay for :/ !!?
welcome to Qatar
every company uses tap water. Even Rayyan
Rayyan Bottled Water, the only mineral water from Qatar.
Manal, Safa, Nestle are all treated water (tap water treated).
NO SAFE BOTTLED NOW A DAYS.....all of them with chemicals.
I think almost same quality. full of chemicals and basically the same as tap water... the difference between bottles water and tap water here is bottles water come in bottles.. That's why they call bottles water. :)
We use Manal which is the company as nestle!
jDouble: Does Nestle water have home delivery?
We use Nestle Natural - think thats pretty good?
You should wait for rain and collect the drops, one-by-one.
